Bangalore Medical Services Trust Felicitates Unsung Heroes of State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation in Karnataka
On the 40th anniversary of the non-profit trust, Bangalore Medical Services Trust (BMST), the charitable organisation felicitated the unsung heroes of the State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (SOTTO) of Karnataka, who make the challenging process of organ donation and transplant successful. As a champion of the cause of organ donation in Karnataka, Dr. K Sudhakar, Honourable Minister for Health & Family Welfare and Medical Education graced the event to felicitate the heroes.
Before the doctor performs the intricate surgery for an organ transplant, several people are crucial to the entire process who often go unnoticed. From the police who clear a ‘green corridor’ to ensure smooth transportation of the organ to the hospital, to the airport in-charge who ensure swift transfers, to the forensics team who perform crucial initial investigations before the transplant, and more. Each of these individuals plays a vital role in the process of organ donation and transplant.
